Sound of Silence

By Sadaf R.

The night falls onto this world,
The one that’s only mine,
And there, I shall stand as a loner,
Figuring out these broken lines.

I reach out by the hand;
The sound of silence creeps through my veins,
I feel a touch in the darkness
That takes away all my pain.

I try to see and keep all that there is,
Still figuring out if I’ll end up with another goodbye?
It holds onto me through what I can’t face
And this one couldn’t be another lie.
